Leaking coolant

I got a mystery here. I just replaced my motor, radiator, hoses, and cap. As I drive I smell burning anti freeze. It's not the water pump cause it's new. The leak is toward the radiator cap. I bought a new cap from advance and another one from the stealership. Not sure of the chances of a bad radiator. I feel like it's leaking and blowing back to my cats as I drive and burning up. Any ideas? Also where can I buy a pressure tester for the 3.7. I rented two testers from advance and auto zone which had like 300 adapters but nothing for the Chrysler motor. After spending crazy money and time this is killing me. Sorry for the rant fellas.
